Canada’s reputation loses some lustre
Ranking slips to 14th place on index of ethical governments

From Tuesday’s Globe and Mail
Ottawa — Canada has again slipped, this time to 14th place, on an international index of ethical governments because of a "marked increase" in the perceived level of corruption in the government.
Once regularly ranked fifth — with high scores that placed it in a club with perennial leaders such as Finland, New Zealand, and Denmark — Canada has for three years been sliding on the Transparency International Corruption Perceptions Index, to be released today.
The drop has coincided with the recurring effects of the federal sponsorship scandal, which erupted in 2002 and shook federal politics in 2004 and again this year, but the TI study does not examine the cause of the decline.
The index is based on surveys of analysts and business people. The survey is a proxy for measuring actual corruption, which the TI organization says would be difficult and would produce unreliable results that could not be compared from country to country.
Canada has not only dropped in ranking among countries, but its score without comparison to others has fallen, signalling that its reputation as a country with clean government has been dented.
It received a score of 8.4 out of 10, down from 8.7 last year, and from 9.2 in 2000. That’s still well above most lower-income countries, but no longer makes Canada a leader in the Western world.
"In the case of higher-income countries such as Canada and Ireland, however, there has been a marked increase in the perception of corruption over the past 10 years, showing that even wealthy, high-scoring countries must work to maintain a climate of integrity," Transparency International said in its press release. TI is a Berlin-based non-governmental organization devoted to combatting corruption.
Canada regularly ranked fifth in the 1990s, but slipped from seventh to 11th in 2003, and to 12th in 2004. The 14th-place standing in 2005 is its lowest ranking ever.
"There can be no doubt that the perception of [corruption] has increased," said veteran New Democrat MP Ed Broadbent, the party’s ethics critic.
He said Canadians’ trust in politicians and public servants has declined, but that he believes that over the past 20 years, there have been eruptions of abuses, not a general increase in corruption. "It’s been an episodic thing and right now we’re going through a period where these things stand out."
Iceland placed first on the TI index, with a 9.7 score, followed by Finland, New Zealand and Denmark.
More than two-thirds of the 159 nations included in the index scored lower than five out of 10, with Chad and Bangladesh finishing last, both with 1.7.
Some lower-income countries, such as Botswana at 5.9, scored relatively high, but as a rule, corruption and poverty went hand in hand.
"Corruption is a major cause of poverty as well as a barrier to overcoming it," TI chair Peter Eigen said in the release.
Also yesterday, the Fraser Institute, a conservative think tank based in Vancouver, released a study of reports by federal auditors-general over the past decade, which concluded that waste and abuses could be reduced if the government limited its activities.octubre 20, 2005 a las 12:16 pm #210508
